Rumor: Apple to Launch Touchscreen iMac

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 25 comments

Another manic Monday with the rumormongers.

There have been tons and tons of rumors about the Apple tablet over the last 12 months.  Yes, Apple's foray into the touchscreen PC market is very well documented for a product that has yet to be announced.

Today we're looking at a horse of another color: The possibility of a touchscreen iMac. Digitimes reports that Apple has plans to turn its all-in-one iMac into an all-in-one touchscreen PC.

Citing a Chinese-language Commercial Times report, Digitimes says Apple will launch a 22-inch touch-enabled all-in-one PC in 2010. The new machine will add to Apple's line of iMacs, which includes a 21.5- and a 27-inch model.

Read the original report here.

    Of course this will be the best thing since sliced bread completely disregarding the fact that touchscreen PCs have been around for years.

    Wouldn't it be funny if this turns out to be the January 27th announcement, not a tablet!

    I wonder if the local restaurant will buy one of these to replace the current generation iMac it has sitting in the window doing nothing but displaying the menu.

    Has anyone seen an all-in-one touchscreen from HP/DELL actually be used for anything useful besides a cash register?

    Could you guys just combine all the Apple-related rumors into one topic per day or something? This is getting ridiculous.

    There are no new products to create. Only refinements remain.

    Great, now a few years from now I will be debating the Apple-loyalists who will be claiming Microsoft stole the touch screen from Apple.

    Nah, I think I'll just build a sweet gaming pc with several large screens, a projector, and a sound system for my whole house.

    At this rate, Apple is going to dominate the not too distant future of the Home Information System, where many rooms have computers, for different purposes all having networked storage and back up, with PC's just doing the grunt work of processing and storing apps locally. Apple unfortunately could do this easily with their purpose built hardware and software, where in the windows realm it's somewhat painful for the average user (win 7 has some useful features targeting this but haven't tried them yet, still have vista and don't intend on upgrading any time soon, not enough spare time). Potentially a good small business opportunity though.....Rather than just selling PC's sell the Home Information System and Services .
